My niece Maddie and a couple of her friends went on vacation the other week, ended up in California. I don't know the details of her trip, haven't talked to her yet.

Maddie posted about 50 pictures on her facebook thing, she captioned some of the pictures. Beautiful scenery. A couple of the things that caught my eye, were the giant sequoia trees, crystal clear mountain streams. And she posted a picture of a pinecone, that thing looked to be 10 or 12 inches long.

I don't know much about Yosemite, so I've been reading. 1,200 square miles, just beautiful country.

Here's a link to the park service.

But it looks like it'd be a nice place to visit.
